The Family Upstairs (Lisa Jewell)

Aah -- a unique mystery with twists and turns I didn't see coming. That seems so rare anymore, but that's what I got in Lisa Jewell's The Family Upstairs. 

Libby Jones has never known much at all about her past, but when she is 25, she gets a letter learning who her birth parents are. But that's not the only thing she discovers; she has also inherited their mansion in London, worth millions. When she gets to the home, she finds out that others have been waiting for her...those who escaped the house 25 years before at the time when police found three dead bodies and Baby Libby upstairs unharmed.

I really enjoyed this one, and as I said before, it's so difficult to write a book with a fresh plot nowadays. But that's what readers get in The Family Upstairs, a mystery with unforgettable characters and one that takes them on a wild ride.
